Does David Hasselhoff Have Crabs?

David Hasselhoff has made a name for himself over the years. He’s been seen running in slow-motion on beaches, eating sloppy burgers while drunk, and becoming one of the most beloved musicians in Germany. He’s making news again this week due to a small crab – which has been named after the celebrity.

The Yeti crab was found in Antarctica and apparently has a very hairy chest, which may be the reason they chose to name it the “Hasselhoff.” I wasn’t aware that crabs were hairy, but this little guy lives about 2,500 meters below water in the coldest area of the world. It probably needs that fur.

Interestingly, the Hoff isn’t the only celebrity to have a being named after him:

Hasselhoff isn’t the only star to receive such an honor. Celebs like Angelina Jolie, Steven Spielberg, Mick Jagger and even Charlie Chaplin have also been the inspiration when it comes to naming some of our planet’s smallest life forms.

I need to do some research to find out what these other “life forms” are. What do you think? Is the furry crab appropriately named?
